Forgive my confusion, but does this mean that the maximum output of high-passed speakers are limited by woofer displacement/power handling? My confusion is that I thought maximum tweeter power handling was generally the limiting factor in a bass-managed system, since the woofers on the high-passed speaker is relieved of most of it's work. This allows the high-passed speakers to play *much* louder, or alternately, the same SPL but less distortion.
